Swim Lessons

Tonight was our first night of swim lessons for Lauren. We were so excited to get there and get our swim on! Shawn and I were both a tad bit nervous about how she would do in the water. Well, not actually the water part but more the lots of kids and people swimming next to her part. She is painfully shy and has a tendency to freak out a bit if she isn't comfortable in a situation. Thankfully, tonight there was none of that! She was totally at ease and so extremely excited to be in the water that aside from a shy moment when she wouldn't tell her swim teacher her name she did great. She is enrolled in the parent and child swim course so tonight I got to get in and swim with her. It was such a precious time for me as I got to devote 100% of my attention on her. She soaked it up!

Shawn watched from the sidelines and Easton slept the entire time! Shawn will go in the water with her tomorrow night. I know he is excited for it and Lauren is too!

The joy on her face was so precious. She had the biggest smile the entire time and looked like a little natural in the water. I was so proud of her for being brave and putting her face in the water, floating on her back, and jumping into the pool all on her own.

She really hated to leave the pool but with the promise that we would be back tomorrow night she agreed to head home. I'm so glad we decided to go ahead and sign her  up for the lessons and I am thrilled that she loves the water as much as she does!


  1. That's awesome! I'm so glad she had fun! She's doing stuff most of the kids in our class wouldn't even do on the last day! (especially Isaac, haha ;)

  2. Go Lauren! Glad she had such a good time!

  3. Yay! I'm so glad you guys found a class to take! Get ready, I can't get Kyler out of the water now! :)

  4. I'm SO GLAD she enjoyed it!!! Looks like fun for the parents too!!! :-)
